OpTic Gaming Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 star Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow decided he would be the star of Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter’s Twitch stream on Tuesday, February 12 when he took over his teammate’s broadcast.

The pair have been reunited on the OpTic’s starting CoD roster for Black Ops 4, after Karma spent some time on the bench during the World War II season.

Now back together, OpTic Gaming have seen immediate success, winning CWL Las Vegas with many fans praising Barlow for his performance.

OpTic Gaming secured victory at CWL Las Vegas.

The pair are both currently in Columbus, Ohio, with Barlow and Porter sharing an apartment while they compete at the CWL Pro League. After OpTic’s match on February 12, Crimsix decided to boot up his stream and play some pick-up matches with other pro players.


As Porter stepped away from his setup for a moment, Karma quickly swooped in and picked up the headset, claiming that he was going to be playing instead, as his fellow pro players laughed with delight.

“Is Porter hosting?” asked Karma as he put on the headset. “I’m ready to play bro.”

Barlow’s OpTic Gaming teammate Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, who was also in the call, was quick to respond, saying: “This guy’s out of control! Get him off the screen!”

Crimsix found the funny side of the exchange, but eventually returned to his setup and ousted Karma, taking back control of his headset and his stream.


OpTic Gaming’s CWL Pro League campaign has gotten off to an impressive start, despite an early loss to Midnight. Since the opening day defeat, OpTic have won four matches on the spin to move up to third position in Division A.

The team will be back in competition on Wednesday, February 13 when they take on undefeated division leaders Gen.G Esports.
